The memorial is huge and filled with the rise, crimes and downfall of the nazi regime. It is recommended that you spend at least 2-3 hours to see everything in the camp including 'The Bunker' (the camp prison), prisoner barracks and the crematorium. It was...More

This memorial is huge. You could spend hours there, taking it all in, and reflecting in the huge open spaces. We spent an hour with all of the children in tow. I was prepared not to show them anything and keep them on the outside...More

The site is organised in a straightforward, open way. You can tour it for free yourself, and the information boards, audio guides and periodic film shows will give you a reasonably full impression of the camp's background and development. There is a good bookshop and...More
